Will Pakistan be the next?
Pakistan is already a democracy aaaaaaaaa a partial democracy but stall a democracy. What kind of resolution pakistan want is a question....
Pakistan needs deliverance from its army, intel and mullah rule. The democracy there is limited and controlled by the army. Even the nuke button is in army hands and not civilian. the comparison is quite wrong between egypt, tunisia and pakistan.
Problem is, the very army is looked upon as saviour in pakistan and there is no near term possibility of the army there being confined to Pindi and not I'bad.
In Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen the fundamentalist seized the opportunity that came off from passion whipped for jihad from media like 'Al jazeera'.
But in Pakistan the real power is held in the hands of the fundamentalist : the 'ISI', Army and their propagandists - mullahs.
If these guys want to Turn-On the passion and Talibanize Pakistan, they can.
Its upto them to decide the timing.
But ALARMING is : NUKE IN HANDS OF ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALS IN PAKISTAN.
And their AIM - MISSION IN LIFE -OR- MISSION TO DIE FOR : ANNIHILATE INDIA.
Are we guys doing anything about it ?????
Short answer: No.
Because they are filled with hate and jealousy.
Whoever comes to power in Iraq, Egypt, syria, lebanon, Sudan, Pakistan or any other Arab state their animosity towards the Jewish state of Israel will not fade.
The demonstrations in Egypt stands for a dictator to quit and the rule of civilians coming in. We should also not forget Egypt is/was a moderate state. Taking clue from the unrest in Egypt and predicting if that was to happen in Pakistan is a childish dream. Pakistan survives on hate directed towards India, and US aid makes sure it does not fall. Literacy, economy, social profile alone cannot raise Pakistan towards civility. Voices, rare, but we hear of sometimes asking for a change are gutted. Pakistan is decades away, if not centuries, from being a responsible Civilian state or for it's civilians standing up to the PA & ISI and saying, enough is enough.
yes the moment pak release raymond davis yes pak is next
I beg to disagree. Pakistan lives on US' wherewithal, and not on it's masses.
wait and watch pak is like bomb waiting to be triggered by raymond davis
Well I'd say a release would surely lead to consequences to internal stability of Pakistan.
Much may not change on ground but in mindset, in public perception towards the State and US - there's a huge swing coming up.
Still my answer to "Is Pakistan next? is No. Just a little short of that trigger.
Has Pakistan not already had several Egypt's? every time they have a coup by the military - is that not a form of radical change forced upon an existing government by ' other entities'? - was 71' also not a form of Egypt like change?
so to me they have already experienced such changes. the next one is when the religious right in Pakistan , finds another Zia like general..
It matters little whether Pakistan will ever see an uprising like that. Simply because right now, they are facing more violence daily than the violence of Tunisia-Egypt, Jordan and other Arab nations combined. Terrorism, mass killings, riots, jihad, mullah fatwas, target killing, ethnic violence, joblessness, economic bleeding and to add icing to the cake; nuclear weapons.
So basically, Arab states are doing pretty good. Egypt had a pleasant growth rate of 6-7% per annum and at one time BRIC analysts even thought of including Egypt and South Africa in the BRIC group. Which means they are far far more stable despite political upheaval than even the most quiet of current Pakistan.
A revolution barely matters there because no matter who's in power, the mulla brigade is the main boss calling all the shots.
